Baby Cambridge: Potential Names and Godparents
 
Let the fun begin.

wow that was quick with the new thread:flowers:
If its girl, I hope they dont name her Diana as a first name (too many cons IMO). As one of the middle names yes.

If its a boy, Alexander or Arthur :smile:

Princess Martine 12-03-2012 01:02 PM

If it's a girl I really hope they will name her Elizabeth!

Elenath 12-03-2012 01:06 PM

I hope they step away from the usual names the BRF uses and pick a new but still beautiful name. Sebastian makes a nice choice for a boy imo. Isabella or Charlotte for a girl.

Lumutqueen 12-03-2012 01:08 PM

I hope they go through every name and put King or Queen in front of it, and if it sounds stupid they forget it. And no Diana, please no.

I love these threads!

I really hope Charlotte or Arthur make a presence in the child's names.

As for Godparents, I imagine they will repay some of William's friends who he has a godfather to their children. I also really hope Sophie is one of the godparents, as she has appeared to be a great help to Catherine and they both look like they get on very well.

I am right there with you, although I think Diana will be in the name somewhere. Seeing how William gave Kate his mom's ring, I am sure he will opt for her name to be included.

Arthur definitely needs to make an appearance, I would love Henry to have a boy named Arthur. Henry and Arthur. ;)

I don't think they will saddle the child with the name Diana -- too much baggage. However, I have always thought they would include Diana's middle name -- Frances -- as one of the names. That way they honor the child's grandmother and great-grandmother at the same time. I wouldn't be surprised if the child is names Elizabeth (also Kate's middle name) or Victoria. So here are my "guesses":

Elizabeth Frances Catherine Victoria
Victoria Elizabeth Catherine Frances
Longshot: Charlotte Victoria Elizabeth Frances

I'm so happy :flowers::flowers: Seems like I am the one who is pregnant :tongue:

For a girl Victoria? I don't think they'll call her Diana, but who know...
And for a boy Philip or Arthur!

The godparents: I'd like to see Sophie as godmother and sir Van Cutsem as his/her godfather :) (please no Pippa!)

An Ard Ri 12-03-2012 01:19 PM

I like Elizabeth,Louise,Alice or Charlotte for a girl ,not sure on a boys name yet I can't see them using Philip/Edward or Charles .

Rice 12-03-2012 01:38 PM

Victoria or Elizabeth for a girl.
George or Edward for a boy

principessa 12-03-2012 01:41 PM

Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Carole Diana
Prince Philip Michael Henry Charles

As godparents I see HRH Prince Harry of Wales, Philippa Middleton, Hugh van Cutsem, one friend of Catherine, HRH Prince Pavlos of Greece and Denmark.

someonelikeyou 12-03-2012 01:44 PM

Charlotte or Caroline for a girl, with Frances as a middle name/nod to Diana...

I like George for a boy... Is Christian a possible BRF name? I like that too.

Hmm ... I just noticed that I didn't propose any male names. Perhaps I'm psychic??? Oh, well ... here are my picks for little boys:

Philip Charles Arthur George
Arthur William Charles Philip
George William Michael Philip

martina 12-03-2012 01:47 PM

For girl: Elizabeth Diana Victoria
For boy: Henry Charles Philip

As goodparents:
Prince Harry, Michael Middleton, Pippa Middleton, Hugh and Rose van Cutsem

Jacknch 12-03-2012 01:51 PM

Well, I think very traditional names will be used, but I do agree with some of the others that it would be nice for there to be one or two more unusual names used too.
For a girl, I think the first two names will be Victoria Elizabeth and for a boy, I think it would be Albert George (if so, he would undoubtably be nick-named Bertie in sone quarters!).
I imagine over the next few months I will change my mind!

With regard to Godparents, I think it would be nice if Zara or Peter were amongst them.

Yes, Christian could be used - th Duke of York is Andrew Albert Christian Edward.

HRHHermione 12-03-2012 01:54 PM

I hope they go a little more outside the box than Victoria or Elizabeth. Perhaps Alexandra or Charlotte. I am one of the few that wouldn't even mind Diana.
